      Have a link to the wireless receiver you bought? Would like to look at adding this to my cruiser.

      Pascoscout replied to the thread Quick question about stock vs aftermarket E-lockers.
      I have the factory lockers. They work fine when engaged but they can be slow to do so and slow to unlock. In my opinion they are not worth the extra money most people want for a rig with them. I plan to go eatons on the other truck I am building now.

      Pascoscout replied to the thread Shopping for a 4.5" grinder, advice?.
      Makita all the way. I've done fabrication at a professional and hobbyist level for over 20 years and have had one grinder that entire time, which is my Makita 5". I've tried a few others along the way but the Makita just works, it feels right in...

      Pascoscout replied to the thread TLC 80 series in 1/18.
      I have the FMS one. Apparently there are even cheaper versions of varying quality. I can say the FMS one is pretty well built and capable. The weight and balance are a little off (it likes to roll on its side) but I think some wheel weights will...

      There happen to be varying "degrees" of temperature that the VHT paints can withstand. They started out as a high temp paint brand but have since expanded their line, they actually make paints that are not rated for high temp too. Since I have no...

      The VHT Roll bar and Chasis paint has a really nice finish. Looks like satin black powder coat. I use it all the time on my UTV. Not sure how well it would deal with heat though.

      Buy a black VHT paint from auto parts store, wire brush and clean the hub with brake cleaner before paint. The drum is what needs the VHT. Otherwise you can use an epoxy primer and black top coat. You can do it all with epoxy primer and black...

      Pascoscout replied to the thread Question on stereo swap for a 1997 80 Series.
      There is not a lot of room in the dash. The face plate is probably the right size but I would be worried about the depth if it has a built in changer.

      I painted mine black with rustoleum. I like the look but I do have to repaint every couple of years. POR15 would also work but you would need the UV inhibiting top coat, the paint itself won't hold up well in the sunlight.

      I'm interested in going too. The WABDR is on my to do list and would be great to run it with a bunch of other 80 series!

      Pascoscout replied to the thread 96 LX450 Turns Over Intermittently.
      Mine used to do as you describe, would just click but if I turned the key a handful of times it would eventually turn over and fire up. Didn't do it every time, but it got more frequent over time. It was the starter for me. I tried replacing the...

      Glad you figured it out. Was going to ask if you redid the magnets or something to reverse the polarity.

      Pascoscout replied to the thread Rear Swingout DIY's.
      I used mostly readily available flat stock to keep cutting to a minimum and help with keeping lines straight. Also, as far as removing the cross member goes. In my opinion you don't gain much by removing it unless you aren't running a swing-out...

      Also if you haven't read it this thread has great information on rebuilding and reinstalling the rear actuator. https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/locker-actuator-rebuild.551069/page-2

      Pascoscout replied to the thread Rear diff lock rebuild confusion.
      Have you tested for 12v at the plug just before the locker? It's short duration (i.e. voltage is only present briefly) when it locks/unlocks so it helps to have someone turn the switch while you verify 12v. Attached is a test sequence in the FSM...

      Rear main or upper oil pan arch seal. They are right next to each other. You can inspect both through the access cover on the transmission. Either one is going to be an involved job. Rear main requires removal of the transmission. Upper pan arch...
